McCoist: Forget about Naismith absence

Ally McCoist insists Rangers must move on from the loss of Steven Naismith and focus on finding other ways to win games following their first Clydesdale Bank Premier League defeat of the season at Kilmarnock.

Manuel Pascali grabbed the only goal of a 1-0 victory for Killie at Rugby Park to end Rangers' run of 14 consecutive wins on the road.

The 1-0 reverse followed last week's goalless draw against St Johnstone at Ibrox, with the slump coming after key player Naismith was ruled out for the rest of the season with cruciate ligament damage sustained a month ago.

McCoist said: "Any team in the country would miss Naismith and we are no different.

"But there is no use sitting here saying we are missing Naismith without doing something about it. We have to do something about it.

"We have to win games other ways. Naismith ain't coming back so we just need to get on with it."
